- The photography of john mielke


I'm a radio broadcaster by trade (25+ years on Ottawa radio), but have always had a keen interest in photography.

My first photos were taken with an old Kodak Baby Brownie camera my grandmother gave me when I was just a kid.

Following that, a colour Kodak Instamatic X15F film camera was by my side for many years. Looking through the photos I took in my youth it seems I've always being drawn to nature/landscape scenes!

In the late 90's my film cameras made way for a variety of digital point and shoots.

In December 2005, I took my photography to a whole new level after acquiring my first professional DSLR camera. I've succesfully completed various courses in portraiture, lighting, flash photography, wedding photography, and Adobe Photoshop™.

I have done photographic work in Myrtle Beach SC, Las Vegas NV, Cuba, Dominican Republic, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Jasper National Park; But mostly, I shoot in, and around my hometown of Ottawa.

After 26+ years in radio, I have a confident, natural and comfortable approach when dealing with people. A sense of humour helps put even the most camera shy client at ease. Your photo session with me will most certainly be an enjoyable one!

Thanks for considering John Mielke Photography for your photographic needs! I look forward to "developing" a long lasting relationship with you.
